Is it ok to go with the ones on ebay or where can I find them? Want the best quality ones possible, not too worried about the price.
EMPI from RockAuto or Amazon(they are new and properly case hardened.)
MWE is a well respected rebuilder of Subaru axles.
Supposedly, rebuilts from the dealer are good.
Everyone seems to agree the worst are from parts retailers like A'Zone, O'reilly, etc.
you can start some arguments with this question, like engine oil discussions.
You can reboot them yourself - but it sounds like you need more than just a boot on one of yours. Somefolks will swap sides so the force is on 'almost' new surfaces.
Personally, I have an EMPI on the wife's Outback. Zero problems so far. (do not torque with the wheel on the ground)

If they can't help, reboot and swap sides with yours, or get junkyard axles, reboot/regrease and swap sides.
Cardone might work for you, but it's the most risky option from what I've read.

Looked on 1stsubaruparts and saw a few different things and wasn't sure which ones I actually need. I have heard that you can just get one CV boot that will work in all 8 spots...can someone direct me to which one I need to buy? (plan on getting at least 8 and going ahead and replacing all of the boots at once.) Or am I wrong and I need to get different ones for each spot?
I have no experience with doing this (well, a very long time ago, I tried a split boot on a Honda - didn't las a month)
BUT, maybe you'remebering this;http://www.ultimates...ad.php?t=118248
also, if you do decide to go with a local rebuilder - MANY people (including me) have successfully used DAPE in north Fort Worth. (around 33rd street I think. )
